"Evidence for the belief in a life after death has to be sharply distinguished from evidence for life after death itself. Humans have always and nearly everywhere held some form of belief that life does not end with the grave or funeral pyre. Anthropology, sociology, and the history of world religions all provide ample evidence of the extent to which our species has expressed its solid, near-universal faith that death if not the last word. But evidence of such a faith, however abundant or moving, is not the same thing as evidence for the reality of a life beyond. ..... This brings us to the second important clarification. Evidence and proof are by no means one and the same thing." -- Intro.

Anglican opportunities in South America : final report submitted to The National Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church, U.S.A. and The Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy to the Lambeth Conference of the Anglican Communion
"This report comprises the major finding of an exploratory field study initiated by the Bureau of Applied Social Research, Columbia University, in December, 1961 at the request of the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy of the Anglican Communion and the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church, U.S.A. The purpose of the study was to obtain information useful in determining whether or not opportunities for Anglican missionary work in South America are evident. In the course of bringing this complex problem into manageable focus, three research objectives were made explicit: (1) to identify significant social and religious trends in selected South American societies; (2) to locate priority social and religious needs within the context of these trends; and (3) to formulate proposals congruent with the Anglican Communion that can contribute to the solution of these needs. .... Four countries were selected as research sites: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru. The field work was initiated in Santiago, Chile, during May 1962. .... By September, 1962, the three members of the research team had collected 900 'citizen' interviews, 600 student questionnaires, 70 interviews with key leaders of Protestant and Roman Catholic institutions, 36 interviews with Protestant converts, and numerous informal interviews with Roman Catholic clergy, secular professionals, social scientists, and community leaders." -- Preface.

OTCH copy was property of A.H. Davis and has extensive underlining
Carbon copy of note laid in with OTCH text is dated May 13, 1963 and reads: "The Study 'Anglican Opportunities in South America' was commissioned by the National Council at the request of the Anglican Executive Officer [Stephen F. Bayne, Jr.], representing one of four studies of major areas considered by the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy as being primary candidates for possible expansion of Anglican Missionary Work. The Executive Officer is therefore placing this in the hands of those most concerned since it is an important part of the 'homework' for the Conference of Missionary Executives and of the Advisory Council, both of which convene in Canada in the Summer of 1963".

"This book is a notable and a fascinating contribution to the literature of religion in general and to the literature of Anglicanism in particular. In it the bishops of the whole Anglican Communion speak, and, in speaking, endeavour to teach the doctrine of the apostles, in whose fellowship they continue steadfast. .... The comprehensive character of the book is shown not only by the inclusive list of its episcopal contributors but also by the subjects it covers. The subjects include all of the seasons and holy days of the Christian Year; the Sacraments; all important occasional services, such as Christian Burial and the Dedication of a Church; and virtually every aspect of the relationship of the Church to the modern world and the contemporary life of the individual, including Missions, Stewardship, Labor, the Armed Forces, Sickness and Death. The book, in other words, views the whole of life in the modern world from the vantage point of the Christian religion". -- Preface.

"The aim of the report is twofold. Firstly, to provide the Churches with information about what is happening and to point out some of the issues which require consideration or action by them. Secondly, I have tried to produce a resource book for those engaged in ecumenical experiments or seeking information about them. The need for this is evidenced by the large number of enquiries which are reaching me every week at the moment". -- Preface.

"One could easily make a strong case showing that according to the Bible God has nothing to do with people of other faiths. .... The author of this study has rightly rejected such a proof-texting misuse of the Bible. He attempts to listen to the whole biblical message. .... What then can we learn from this exploration on the Bible and people of other faiths ? First of all, many of the critical questions which constantly arise in connection with the dialogue between Christians and people of other faiths are honestly taken up here and discussed in the light of the biblical message. Secondly, the author shows convincingly that among the variety of biblical traditions there is one which not only legitimizes such a dialogue but challenges us to enter into it. Thirdly, here are important biblical insights about the theological presuppositions and the necessary spiritual attitudes for such a dialogue". -- Foreword.
"When the Asia-Pacific Region of the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) asked me to write a book on dialogue, what they were looking for was something that would help an average Christian to relate to people who live by other faith convictions. .... In responding to the WSCF request, therefore, I have chosen to deal with what in some ways is a more difficult subject, namely 'The Bible and People of other Faiths'. This subject should be of interest to a much larger constituency than the WSCF had in mind, and hence this joint WCC-WSCF (Asia-Pacific) publication". -- Intro.

"The past five years in Canada have seen a remarkable upsurge of concern and creative initiatives to support and strengthen family life. Among the more notable events have been the Canadian Conference on the Family held in Ottawa in 1964, which led directly to the establishment of the Vanier Institute on the Family; the Second North American Conference on the Family held in Hamilton in June 1966; and the two symposia on Family Planning (April 1966), and Family Life Education (September 1967), both of which were sponsored by Ortho Pharmaceutical (Canada) Ltd.
Several Canadians who were present at the 1966 Hamilton Conference felt that it had suffered from a lack of adequate theological support. This concern was discussed in the Faith and Order Commission of the Canadian Council of Churches, and the Council requested this Commission to undertake a research project on Sexuality and Family Life. Ortho Pharmaceutical (Canada) Ltd. generously supported this two-year study as well as the printing of the resulting report". -- Foreword.

"In an earlier work ('Scientism, Man and Religion') I made the statement that most of the well-known conflicts between science and religion turn out, on investigation, to have been debates either between pseudo science and religion or between pseudo religion and science. In that book I attempted to define what I mean by pseudo science and to point out its mistakes. In the present work, I try to explain what I mean by pseudo religion and to expose its errors.
This attempt is made with special reference to the nature of man. In opposing the current naturalistic and materialistic estimates of human nature, it is all too easy to slip, by way of reaction, into some untenable form of body-soul dualism. I found myself repeatedly on the edge of this precipice in my attack on scientism. The questions were, therefore, raised in my mind: What exactly do we mean when we speak of `soul' or `spirit' in relation to man ? And what exactly are the points of difference between the Christian and the naturalistic views of man ?
This book s the result of my reflection on these questions. I hope that it will make some contribution to the discussion of the nature of man, a subject that is central in almost all the issues confronting us today". -- Preface.
